Instructions: Click here to view more photos of this project. Stamp the Tea Time and Flowering Dogwood images with versamark and gold heat emboss. Colour with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Die-cut with matching dies. Cut, colour an additional teapot lid and label. Use a craft knife/scissors to cut out the centre of the label and a slit in the teapot along the bottom wavy line of the lid to allow the image to slide behind approx. 2” wide. Adhere acetate behind the label frame. Place shaker pieces within the label area of the teapot and adhere the frame/acetate over to create the shaker.
To create the stepper card, cut white cardstock 10 x 5 1/2”, cut at 2 1/4” x 6 1/2” long. Lay landscape onto the Scor-pal with the widest part at the top and score to the cut line 1, 2, 3 1/2”, 5, 7 1/2”. The score line at 5” should be the entire length as this will create the top fold of the card. Fold the score lines 1” mountain, 2” valley and so on until all the steps are folded and burnished.
Cut pink and green paper to size and ink the edges using stack & store daubers. Adhere each section of the underside and back of the card with pink from Sweet Peony Collection paper pad and the front and steps with green from Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection paper pad. Cut a white panel for the back of the card using Fleur Border Basics Die and trim with Sweet Peony strips. Above each step allow an additional 1” of green paper to create the grass, make narrow cuts to the exposed green paper with scissors, change the angle of the cuts to give shorter and longer blades of grass. To prevent the stepper card from sliding open too far, cut a strip of card approx. 1/2” wide to the desired length plus 1/2”, score the strip landscape down the centre and 1/4” each end and fold in the shape of W, adhere each 1/4” front and back of the card from the underside.
Mount your photograph onto a piece of card stock and attach to the back of the additional teapot lid allowing the lid lip to sit over the cut line. Adhere the flowering dogwood flowers, leaves and Tea Time decorative elements to each step and front of the card. Attach the teapot to the tall narrow section of the card with adhesive only at the top of teapot this will allow the remaining part of the teapot to hang further forward when the card is erected.
